WESTONIA. Westonia, Feb. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 13 February 1917

Some months ago Jim Comini, Jack Young, and Walter Mattey opened up a quartz reef to the south ward of the Soak; and owing to the excellence of their early pro. spects many areas were pegged in the vicinity, and hopes ran high. Down to a depth of 21 ft. the pro. spectors obtained handsome results, but unfortunately missed a continu. ance of the make of stone, the reef cutting off suddenly. Recently "Bob" Smith, a "lone hand" prospector of these parts, elected to give the abandohed lease further trial, and to-day he ar rived in Westonia with some ex cellent stone, carrying coarse gold. His many well-wishers hope. that "Bob" will succeed in locating a payable b6dy at depth, but at pre sent it is, of. course, asomewhat.early to predict anything- regarding the discovery: A few chains away the Spencer Bros. are carrying out a systematic exploitation of the lease on which they recently obtained an eight-ton parcel, worth 1 oz. 8 dwt. to the ton; and still fur...

STATE POLITICS Perth, Feb. 9. There is much dissatisfaction among the Centralisation and Coun try party members with Mr. Wil son's tactics. They hold that the original blunder was his grasping for office when he ousted Mr.. Scad dan. Then followed continual mis takes, not keeping his financial pro mises and introducing party meat sures when non-contentious matters were required by the circumstances. The Premier has now beepn com pelled by these members to jettison all the bills before the House, be cause they presented an ultimatum to 'him. Before anythine more was done with them, their financial un dertakings must be honoured and economies effected, even if econo mies in certain directions were. only obtainable by amending the .Publio Bervice Act. Certain other Centralisation mem bers opposed this latter action for ' they, beli $h f _ro the t n e9 tain whispers that reached their car, that, if they countenanced retrench. ment, men in sympathy with the civil servants will oppose the...
